A highly respected Ijaw leader and elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark has advised the federal government to reconsider its proposals to station a Naval base in Kano State.

Putting forth his argument, chief Clark said a naval base in a desert appears like an impossible mission and misplaced priority.
